Wilbert B. Smith was one of the pioneers in UFO Sighting research and investigation. An article here for those unfamiliar with his life and work.
Wilbert Smith was born in Lethbridge, Alberta, in 1910. He graduated from the University of British Columbia, with degrees in electrical engineering. He worked as the chief engineer for radio station CJOR in Vancouver. By 1939 Wilbert Smith was working for the federal Department of Transport. Smith believed UFO Sightings were linked to psychic phenomena and believed himself to be in contact with extraterrestrial beings who communicated to him through telepathy. Smith wrote a number of articles for Topside, the publication of the Ottawa New Sciences Club which he founded, outlining the philosophy of the "Space Brothers" with whom he claimed to be in contact. The articles were later collected and published posthumously in 1969 under the title The Boys from Topside. Credit Grant Smales.
